    Training Class 2018

    New Class Starts MAY 17, 2018

    The core of the 40Plus commitment to improve your job search is an intensive, four-week training course. Learn how to manage your search and maximize the results.

    Our course leverages the most effective tools and tips from commercial executive search and placement services with the unique power of peer group dynamics to help you develop a solid foundation and an effective plan for your job search.

    Meeting in small groups with facilitators, learn every task of job and career change hands-on:

    • Learn the secret of building resumes from power-packed “Success Bites”
    • Write and critique cover letters tailored to real jobs
    • Discover your interviewing style through taped mock interviews, and refine your technique in a supportive atmosphere
    • Develop a brief self-profile that will make others want to help you
    • Increase your networking skills and confidence
    • Learn how to plan, organize and succeed in your job search
    • Learn how to use social media like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook for your job search and to build your brand.

     

    The course schedule is as follows:

    • A required Pre-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This helps the participants and facilitators understand areas to focus on throughout the course.
    • The classes meet over four weeks on:
      • Monday and Wednesday evenings (6:30-9:30 pm) and
      • Saturday mornings (9:00 am - 1:00 pm).
      • A special social media session will be held one evening (6:30 - 9:30 pm) on a date to be determined with the class.
    • A required Post-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, June 21st at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This provides practice opportunities for newly acquired skills, and measures overall improvement in career transition skills.

      Please note: The Pre- and Post- Class Assessments not only provide valuable practice with mock interview and networking sessions, but they as well help participants and facilitators understand which areas they should focus on to improve.  Attendance to these is a requirement.

    WordPress Websites for Professionals

    Conversation with
          Gary Vaughan



     Gary Vaughan
    Senior IT Advisor
    Buchanan & Edwards


    WordPress is a popular, powerful and user-friendly open source software that accounts for some 25% of all sites on the Web.  Professionals can use WP either as a personal blogging and social media platform, or as a content management system within an organization.

    In this presentation, Gary will explain WordPress's (WP) breadth as both a blog and content management system, explore various WP hosting options, and show how WP compares or connects with other site builder or social media tools.  He will then discuss the details of planning website content and design, drawing on such WP components as Themes, Plugins and Widgets, and tapping a wealth of support resources on the Web and at WP events around the DC area.  The talk will also include a WP demo, models of WP sites, and WP resource handouts.  Lastly, he will touch on tech and non-tech career opportunities in WordPress.  After the class, Gary offers to help (for a limited time) any interested attendees get started with their own free Wordpress.Com site.
